You can not ask for better vistas than what you get from this castle. We drove to the castle so it was easy access for us.If you are ever in the area, make sure you stop in.

Access to the topmost inner palace will test your fitness, as this is a no lift, no escalator experience. But highly rewarding. Also, it's necessary for foreign visitors to read up on the rich and somewhat tragic history of this palace before venturing up there...More

Hí, Visegrád is a small city without taxi company. Castle is at walking distance, cca. 40 minutes walk upwards, 20-25 minutes downwards. If you are not short on time, I suggest to take the walk. Have fun, be open! B.
